The glow of a holiday can be seriously scarred by a disastrous flight experience.

Passengers trying to get from Philadelphia to Lisbon were delayed when a woman had to be forcibly removed from their flight after kicking off at the crew. 

And we're pretty sure the 26 passengers on this Qantas flight won't have fond memories of the gastrointestinal illness that struck midflight, resulting in a mass vomiting and diarrhoea episode.

Puking babies. One too many drinks. Awful delays. Mid-air relationship breakups. And then there's extreme turbulence. There are so many ways a flight can go horribly wrong.
